Mourinho to be careful when picking Rashford


Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has admitted he will be careful when choosing to start Marcus Rashford, despite the teenager coming off the bench to score an injury time winner against Hull.

The England International made his first appearance of the season when he replaced Juan Mata in the 72nd minute and scored in the 92nd minute to maintain United’s 100 per cent start to the season.

Mourinho, although impressed by Rashford, has suggested that the he will not change how and when he chooses to play the 18-year-old despite his last-gasp winner.

"He's very good, I know that he's very good since last season, but working with him every day I think the same.” Mourinho said.

"The two matches we were needing a winning goal against Leicester and tonight. He came on and gave us diversity in our football.

"He's different than (Wayne) Rooney, he's different than Zlatan (Ibrahimovic), so everybody is happy with him and we're happy with the squad."

Rashford has been highly rated at Old Trafford since he broke into the Red Devils first-team and will have only added to his reputation after scoring from close-range in the dying seconds at the KC stadium.

"I have two weeks before the next match, I have to analyse the opponent and see the way my boys are coming back from the international games," Mourinho said.

"He can play but he can be on the bench, I don't know.

"I have to analyse. The important thing is that he's working very well. He's 18-years-old."

Mourinho and Manchester United will now turn their attention to the 10th of September when they will face rivals Manchester City at Old Trafford.
